Bible Truth FAQs
ARE PREACHERS RELIABLE?
One of the greatest dangers in religious circles is the willingness of people to accept anything the preacher says as truth without seeking Bible authority for what he says. Mortal man is not infallible, regardless of some claims that he is.
In I Kings 13 the account of two prophets of God is given in which the old prophet lied to the other and caused him to lose his life. The old prophet's message was different from God's instructions but was readily accepted by the other prophet.
In Acts 18:24-26 a certain Jew named Apollos was an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, but he was for a time unreliable, knowing only the baptism of John. He had to be taught the way of God more perfectly.
Know what the Bible says so that you can be capable of trying the spirits (I John 4:1). One can believe a lie and be damned (II Thess. 2:11-12). Ignorance of the scriptures makes one an easy prey to the false prophet.
